The walk is conducted by Smaat India, that helps providing safe water solutions to various communities across India through water purification systems that provide sustainable and affordable potable water supply. Through the establishment of Smaat Community Water Centres in 13 different states and 48 districts.
The focus of the walk is to stress on the importance of safe water, its conservation and advocacy as a promoter of good health.The walk will be followed by a short talk and panel discussions on the promotion of safe drinking water and sanitation practices in India.
To support this unique social event, several dignitaries from social, sports and film sectors will be taking part.
The World Water Day celebration by Smaat India will focus the criticality of the issue and garner adequate state and private interests for active promotion of this noble cause.
